    This is a pretty big opportunity for Gegard. Huge. I think he's got more to gain with a win than Lyoto.

    Sorry Fedor, but Dan Henderson is the G.O.A.T.

    so true. he does fight with the "this is so boring" attitude. even in his loss to king mo. king mo took more damage from top position than mousasi did the whole fight. he had the "i'm bored" look as mo tried and failed miserably to inflict any damage. I'll go out on a limb here and say mousasi wins the mental game and the fans booo...machida becomes agressive and Mousasi Kos him. that's right, I said it Mousaasi by tko/ko.

    Yes, Mousasi is always with that face of "I woke up 2 minutes ago, I don't know what you want from me, but I don't give a fuck. I want to go back to sleep".

    However when he fights, he is a beast. He is a very good striker and has KO power. He may KO Machida actually.

    Without a word of a lie, win or lose, Jim Miller is the epitome of a fucking hoss and just exudes badassedry. He's my favourite fighter not named GSP. But seriously, I wish he was my dad.

    This is an awesome fight. Lyoto looks great but Mousasi is an absolute beast. Mousasi will hit him HARD, really HARD and Lyoto will not like that and abandon his striking I believe, and Mousasi will start thrashing Machida in the middle rounds.

    I got Mousasi Unanimous Decision.
    Fedor Emelianenko is the Greatest P4P MMA fighter to ever walk the earth, hands down.

    Mousasi can play the precision/counter/waiting game just as well as Machida, and his handspeed on his counter jabs is a serious danger, even to Machida. This is a much riskier fight than the one against Belfort IMO

    Gegard Mousasi uses karate sparring to train for Lyoto Machida

    "I already know how Machida fights style-wise," Mousasi told MMAFighting.com, "and I have a training partner that has fought him twice in karate, so I will be ready for him."

    Mousasi is also training with Satoshi Ishii, who has trained in the past with "The Dragon" at Black House in Los Angeles, but he hasn’t called Ishii to get inside information from Machida’s training camp.

    "That was a long time ago, and that’s now why here’s here for," he said. "We’re helping each other. I’m already training and in shape. It’s basically getting shape now, and then concentrate in my fight."

    Few fighters were able to stand and do well against the Brazilian, but Mousasi is confident his aggressive style will help him.

    "I’m more of a kickboxer, he’s a counter puncher," he said. "He takes his time and has good feeling of distance. My style is to come forward and keep the pressure, so I think I’m gonna match up really well."

    Mousasi returns to middleweight after going 10-1-1 in the light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions over the last five years, and his performance against Ilir Latifi wasn’t one of the reasons why he decided to move down.

    "I gave some weight advantages to my opponents, so I’m gonna be physically stronger in this division," he said. "And I don’t need to cut much weight, this is my natural weight division. I’ll perform at my best at 185."

    "The Dreamcatcher" won’t rule out the possibility of fighting at 205 pounds again, but his focus is in the middleweight division.

    "I’m gonna concentrate at 185, but I have no problems fighting at 205," he said. "But I wanna make a title run so doesn’t make sense to change weight constantly. I’m going for the 185-pound belt, that’s my goal."

    Chris Weidman puts his title on the line against Anderson Silva at UFC 168, and Vitor Belfort is already waiting for his shot at the gold. Mousasi knows there’s a chance he earns a title shot with a win over Machida, and he’s willing to sit and wait for the opportunity.

    "Vitor Belfort is going to get the next shot and I think my fight against Machida is gonna determine the No. 1 contender, but it could take a long time," he said. "After this, if I win, I’d have to wait for a long time. I’ll concentrate on this one. But if I have to wait for a title shot, I’m gonna wait.

    "It’s not up to me. Personally, I would like to get a title shot. I think I’ve done enough. But that’s not up to me. First I have to perform and win in a good fashion, and then we’ll go from there."
